Invest in America

Invest in America began as a credit union member enhancement program that offered credit union members discounts when they purchased either a GM or Chrysler vehicle.  In less than a year, the program has grown to include credit union member discounts from Sprint, Thor RV, Allied Moving and Storage, FTD and CU Benefits ExpressHow can Invest in America help your credit union?

Increase your credit union's value to your members.
All the businesses who have partnered with Invest in America are providing discounts to credit union members because they are credit union members.  They are enhancing the value of your credit union to your members simply by the fact they are offered.  Credit union membership has never been more beneficial, whether or not your credit union's members take advantage of some or all of the discounts.

Increase your auto loan portfolio
Benefit your local economy and the U.S. economy as a whole
  • In August, Dutchmen RV announced it was hiring for 50 new manufacturing jobs due to a projected sales increase.  Those jobs are located in Goshen, Indiana
  • In the third and fourth quarters of this year, an increase in the demand for GM vehicles will bring 1,350 GM workers back to work
  • Due to the over 200,000 vehicles sold through Invest in America, $4.4 billion has been re-invested in the U.S. economy
Additionally, Invest in America provides credit unions with:
  • Extremely positive press coverage that differentiates credit unions from other financial institutions by helping support U.S. jobs and our economy
  • Opportunities to educate members on credit union advantages, including lower loan rates, lower fees and better service.
Invest in America is much more than an automotive discount program.  It is a membership enhancement program aimed at increasing your credit union's value to your members, increasing your credit union's auto loan portfolio and benefiting our economy.  It's time for your credit union to Invest in America.

Homes For Our Troops

Homes For Our Troops is a national non-profit organization that assists America's disabled and injured veterans' by coordinating fund raising efforts and donations of building materials and professional labor for the building of a new home, or adaption of a current home, for handicapped accessibility - all at no cost to the veteran.

CUNA has been very involved with this important charity, and credit unions and credit union leagues across the country, including the Massachusetts Credit Union League, Advantis Credit Union, Mazuma Credit Union, Greylock Federal Credit Union and the Missouri Credit Union Association are very active in their support.

I don't think there is a better example of credit unions living the "People helping People" philosophy of our movement.  Massachusetts League President Dan Egan summed it up perfectly when he said, "There is no better way for us to mark the 100th anniversary of the founding of the credit union movement than to demonstrate our philosophy of people helping people by lending a hand to these men and women who have given so much for us."

One of the reasons credit unions can continue to help those in need is because members have actual ownership in their credit union.  You can have a say in what your credit union does, including assisting a cause your community believes in, like Homes For Our Troops and supporting programs that get behind U.S. companies and provide discounts for credit union members, like Invest in America.  These are just two of the many examples of how credit unions put their members first.

To find our how you or your credit union can help U.S. veterans, please visit the Homes for Our Troops website.  For more information on Invest in America, please visit Love My Credit Union.
